I haven't read a King novel since I was in my 20s (I'm now in my 50s), thinking I'd outgrown him and the horror genre (though I will always remember the final line of "Pet Sematary").

But after reading all the fine year-end blurbs for Best Books of 2011, including in the Financial Times, for "11/22/63," I thought I'd give it a go.

Once begun, I tore through the book in five days (I had limited time to read, otherwise I would never have put it down), and I now lament having finished it. What a roller-coaster ride.

"11/22/63" is both a terrific time-travel tale and well-researched historical fiction, especially fun for those of us who have some memories of the '50s and '60s, even if we were only children. Certainly the juxtaposition between our online-all-the-time era and a simpler age was thought-provoking in itself, but King also reminds that we've come a long way where racism, ignorance and misogyny are concerned.

A hugely entertaining, thoroughly imaginative and emotionally gripping story, full stop.

I have read probably all of SK's novels - some fantastic (like the Dark Tower series and The Talisman) and some more mediocre . I am not a fan of short stories and if you also like an 'epic' tale - this is one for you.

He is back to his old form to my mind - as another reviewer put it, it was like the author gave you a 'handshake and a hug' and you were off an a brilliant adventure. I couldn't put the book down - meant to take it away on holiday but made the mistake of reading the first few pages - now I will have to find something else.

Great story and characters and would make a great movie - if they spend some money on it and don't turn it into a low budget 'made for tv' mini series which never works on SK's books.

A wonderful book with a heart wrenching ending.

Where does the time go? After finishing this book I checked the internet to find out when I first discovered, and fell in love with, the books of Stephen King. The first one I read was Salems Lot, a paperback I bought using a gift voucher I had been given for a present. I was shocked when I realised that this would have happened over thirty five years ago. I loved Salems Lot and I loved the books that followed it - The Shining, The Stand, The Dead Zone and a stunning short story collection called Night Shift. The publication of a new Stephen King book became a red letter day and I would always ensure that I would purchase my copy the same day that it hit the shelves. Over the years though, the standard of Stephen King's books dipped a little. Whilst they were nearly always good, and some were excellent, none ever seemed quite as good as his earlier masterpieces. I assumed that I would never read a Stephen King book that would better The Shining or The Stand. But then I read 11:22:63.

11:22:63 not only marks the return of Stephen King to his brilliant best, but it is also quite possibly his finest ever novel. Everything about it is spot on. The characters are excellent, but this is only as I expected, as I have always thought that characterisation was one of King's greatest strengths. In his latest book the main character is Jake Epping/George Amberson and he is the archetypal Stephen King "ordinary Joe", a man unwittingly carried along a path on which he has to take decisive actions for the ultimate good of the human race. The story, about travelling back in time to change the future, is superb. Only King at his best could make such an implausible plotline as this seem not only plausible, but utterly believable.

Started out strong, but kind of huffed and puffed it's way over the finish line.
Enjoyable story with some good characters and King's usual dark humor.
Problem for me, as with a lot of his books, is it's overcooked. A good editor would have cut at least 100 pages off.
Btw Love the little 'tip your hat' to IT
Out of all the King books I have read, and there have been many, I'd put this somewhere near the middle of the pile....

I had never read a Stephen King novel...until now.. and what a fabulous experience it was! I was intrigued by the title, so downloaded 11.22.63 to my kindle and a few days later I emerged back into the real world.
In essence this is a classic page turner, written at a cracking pace and with great characterization, but it is also underpinned by some meticulous research into a real life mystery. No-one really knows why Lee Harvey Oswald pulled the trigger on JFK and King attempts to shed a little light on his motives whlist providing the reader with a rollercoster ride through time.
Time travel yarns have never really interested me, but King navigates his way so seamleesly between the two eras that I for one couldn't wait to see what happened the next time Jake/George made his way through the "hole". There are lots of subtle twists and turns as the protagonist attempts to stop the Kennedy assasination not least of which is his love for someone on the 1960's side of the divide.
I disagree with the comments that this book is overlong; at no point did I feel that the writing was laboured, on the contrary I was amazed at King's constant pace and energy. The ending is simply beautiful and moved me to tears. Read this book - you will not be disappointed. I now have a back catalogue to work through...
